Joan Elizabeth Kollman

June 10, 1928March 14, 2020

Joan was born in St. Paul, MN to Paul and June Hassett. She married Al Kollman in 1948 and moved to Portland, OR. Al and Joan had 6 children: Chris, Paul, Steve, Mary, Ann and Joe. Al passed away in 2000. Joan remarried in 2005 to Cyril (Skeeter) Walker. Skeeter passed away in 2016.

Joan was a strong and unique individual, a loving wife twice, a devoted mother to her 6 children and their spouses, a caring grandma to 10 and great grandma to 11, a sister and sister-in-law, a favorite cousin and aunt and a true friend to so many. She was proud to have worked as a manager of cafeterias in the Portland Public Schools. She had an extremely positive attitude and can-do spirit. The cup was always half full. She loved God, entertaining, music and people, especially her family. She will be missed here on Earth, but her spirit still stirs within us.
